Family Found Part 2

Paige called 999 to get an ambulance as well as the police to respond then stopped Anil before he ran off. Anil looked up at Paige and knew that he wasn't going anywhere, but seeing Elise caused him to try to back away in fear before Paige could ask him anything. Elise was told to go back to the car and stay there, she would handle Anil as Elise was just scaring him and making things worse for the boy.

Pretty in Purple

I finally had tricked my wife into a bet where as her forfeit she’d finally do something in the bedroom that she’d absolutely refused to do ever since that first crazy night of debauchery we’d spent together. There was no way I could lose the bet. I was really looking forward to collecting since there was no conceivable way I could lose. I could already smell the sweet smell of victory. The only thing I was worried about was that reality wouldn’t live up to memory.

I lost.

Author's Note: It's been a long time since I started this story. I'm sorry for the delay. I was probably too close to some of what I was writing so had to give it a healthy pause. However now I'm up and running again I hope that you find some small pleasure in this tale. As ever please be tolerant of my failings, and forthright with your criticism. ~Persephone

Anil Patel was a neglected and abused child who only wanted a loving family who accepted his true self. Elise Smith wanted her parents to return home so they could be a family again. Paige Smith needed to care for someone but was struggling with being an aunt to an unruly niece, teacher to a group of spoiled students, and savior to a child in need.

All of their issues come to a head, with something greater bringing them together.

Book 19 in the Winnisimmet Tales saga.

The first Next Generation story.

Family Found Part 1

This is the first "Next Generation" story. It is roughly October of 2038, 16 years after the last story ended. There will be some references to the past but much of this will be entirely new ground even if the storyline is a run of the mill Winnisimmet Tales story. Some are new characters created just for this story, while others are returning characters who did't get much time before.

A big special thank you must go out to my co-plotter, muse wrangler, and all around sounding board, Sammi.

A Visit To VentureRealm Part 8- Finale

The finale of the homage/crossover. This is also the final story set in "Generation 1" as the next stories will take place years 16+ years later. Thank you to Snowfall for allowing me to write using your characters. It was tough thinking up ways of incorporating many characters and finding so many obscure or forgotten about characters who fit the storyline perfectly. Sadly not all could be use, with a heavy heart Zeke the overnight security officer and who touched us as readers wasn't included due to timing issues.

A Visit To VentureRealm Part 6

Snowfall wrote a joke that snowballed into a scene that led to much of this part. The girls were previously featured in VentureRealm Part 12 and Part 14 and by luck were the same age as Cat and Kylie.

All for One Silly Joke!

Wednesday morning as I entered the office Veronica in reception greeted me

- Hi, James. Nice to see you dressed properly again.

I hated it. Just because I decided to joke the Friday before and come dressed in a skirt, a nice blouse that just barely showed the bra under it, pantyhose and shoes with a bit of a heel my life was utterly and completely destroyed. My girlfriend and I had thought it would be hilarious and she had helped me to put on some make-up. Nothing over the top. Just some nice make-up that actually made my 25 year old but unfortunately rather babyish face a bit more mature.

At first everything went according to plan. The other engineers got the joke and had fun comparing my outfit with the usual “dress code” at the design office, i.e. jeans, baggy college shirts and such. Actually I was the only one in a skirt. Not that there were many females among us but anyway. I also got compliments from other people that I met while going from one place another. In one morning I had become modestly famous in the company. Then things started to go wrong, terribly, horribly wrong.

Monday Morning at 08:01

The first day of sophomore year I walked down to the school bus stop. My best friend since we were toddlers, but who had spent summer somewhere else, was already standing there waiting.

- Hi, Sally! Love that dress!

Sally looked at me surprised. I don’t know why. That dress really was beautiful and it made her look gorgeous. The thin black pantyhose made the most of her stunning legs.

- Jake! You knew. You knew all the time!
- Yep. I probably knew before you did yourself

I answered my best friend who the last time I’d seen him had been known as Sal, short for Salomon. I was happy for her. It had taken her much longer time to come out of her shell than I had expected and hoped. I was looking forward to what new relationship we would have. I really was.

From The Past To The Future Part 6

It’s been two months since Lupita found the boy and they still didn’t know the boy's real name. Black Wolf had gone ahead and gave the boy a new name. Haloke was what Black Wolf and Lupita were calling him. Black Wolf had the tribal police run his fingerprints and face to see if he had been kidnapped, but nothing had come back about him.

Looking at the glimmer of the embers in the fireplace which were now almost gone Garrus gathered his thoughts before heading up after Drew. Back in his room he looked around to find Drew lying on his bed, rolled together in the fetal position close to the wall, holding a pillow to his head, sobbing.

The Finn and Pena branches of the Finn Family visit VentureRealm Amusement Park to fulfill a request by the park's owner, Tessa Frost. The family has other reasons for attending, giving someone who earned their love and affection the closure and new start in life that she desperately needs.

A Visit To VentureRealm Part 2

Weather related power issues are prompting me to post this a day early...next part will be posted on Friday unless another storm affects us. Again, this is written with the blessing of Snowfall.

Love & Supernova 28 - Face The Impossible

Snapshot_x.jpg

How powerful is a supernova compared to an atomic bomb? At Hiroshima, less then 1 kg of uranium went fission. Imagine that we fill the Sun with plutonium and detonate it. Compared to a supernova, the blast will be like a campfire compared with an erupting volcano (an answer I got from an astrophysicist working for NASA).

Love & Supernova 27 - The Last Day

Snapshot_x.jpg

What would you do if you know that tomorrow is the last day of your life?

Very soon, the sun will go supernova. There are ten days left. The planet, Betelgeuse VII, is being evacuated. The last survivals are being rescued and moved to a new planet, Betelgeuse S, located at ten light years away.

Love & Supernova 26 - Three Sisters

Snapshot_x.jpg

FireBlast is getting ill, children burning Place (non-sense words from a heavy metal song).

Once, Betelgeuse VII was a paradise for rare sexual minorities and transgender people. But now, things are changed. The sun will soon go supernova. The economy collapsed. Things like electricity, automated trains, distribution services, money or internet, are long gone. There is no institution left, the planet is ruled by anarchy.

A Visit To VentureRealm Part 1

This is a collaboration done at the request of Snowfall. The Winnisimmet Tales storyline involving Sylvia actually appeared in Snowfall's "VentureRealm Amusement Park" series with the character Trent Valens appearing in "...You Are Cordially Invited" on behalf of Tessa as a continuation of that reference. This story picks up where the meeting left off.

Please note that my editor did not yet get to fully review this chapter. I may update it with corrections later.

 

“Oh, but the evening has barely begun, hasn't it? Well then… let's get started…“

Horst looked at both of his children and smiled.

Politics is... not quite relevant yet! [2.1]

ASE.pngJet.jpg

There are many forms of politics out there.
If you really think about it, all social interactions can be boiled down to a form of ‘politics’ in the long run.

That doesn’t mean we all have to be politicians about it though!

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Ill-informed books being studied,
Hannah ends up wishing she had a tail again,
And new clothes are created, for science!

With a loud crack and a flash of light, a portal formed right next to the half-siblings. While this was totally unexpected to them, at least this time they knew what was likely happening. Someone walked through the opening that looked eerily like a hole in space.

Garrus hummed, still focused on each other’s ministrations.

“As much as I’d love to, I’m not sure either of us can lift the other, at the moment.“

A hint of sarcasm shone through Garrus’ humor.

“I'm afraid I’ve got to ask you to…“ he harrumphed “… step down.“

Garrus deadpanned.

“… right. Dem waffles.“

He couldn’t keep a straight face however and started grinning, his mouth watering.

All hard feelings then seemed forgotten and so they went to the table and ate.
